Kathi Macias's No Greater Love flies by like a jet on a tailwind. The reader is catapulted forward, despite unexpected turns and loops, from start to finish. Out of her knowledge of apartheid South. The Excellence in Media Angel Award, San Diego Christian Writers Guild fiction awards, Golden Scroll Novel of the Year (Red Ink), Carol Award finalist (Red Ink), 2011 Author of the Year for BooksandAuthors. A popular speaker for women's retreats, conferences, churches, and TV and radio programs, Kathi also loves outreach to prison and homeless ministries, and praying for and aiding the persecuted church globally.

People of the Book (Extreme Devotion). Kathi Macias delivered all of the above in her just-released novel, No Greater Love. She also plucked one of my heartstrings in her story of the clash of cultures in South Africa and the fight to end apartheid. Ever since reading James Michener's The Covenant, I've been drawn to stories centered on that theme.

This was the book I was most looking forward to in Kathi Macias' Extreme Devotion series. Kathi is truly gifted at exploring the plight of persecuted Christians around the world. Although her characters are fictional, the writing itself is gritty, yet hope-filled, and true to life. Here, the location is Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, one of the world's strictest and most closed Muslim countries.

She sees the month of Ramadan as her chance to draw nearer to Allah, and pursues that goal. All goes well until the prophet Isa―Jesus―appears to her in a dream and calls her to Himself. Her brother, Kareem, who has never liked her, seeks to discredit her. Farah’s cousin, an only child, frequents an online chat. She discovers former Muslims discussing their new belief that Isa is much more than a Muslim prophet―He is actually the Son of God. She becomes acquainted with an American girl of Muslim ancestry―now a devout Christian―Sara. Sara has problems of her own due to her brother Emir’s suspicious behavior. Each finds their faith put to the test. Will they be true to their beliefs? Will God protect them, or will they pay the ultimate price for their faith?

This is the 4th and final (?) book of the Extreme Devotion series by Kathi Macias. Very pro-Christianity; somewaht anti-Islam. Not all Muslims kill their children for believing in Isa (Jesus) to be the son of God. Just as there are Christian Jews, there are Christian Arabs, Iranians, Syrians, etc. I appreciate Ms. Macias' efforts to promote Christianity, and as Christian myself, I support this effort. But the entire series (all 4 books) infer that if one does not accept Jesus Christ as one's lord and savior, not only is there no eternal joy in the afterlife, but there is also severe negative consequences in this life. My God is not like that. Christians have many perspectives of "GOD"; just as Muslims have many perspectives of "ALLAH". Let's not judge them. Still, I would recommend reading the series. It can't hurt. Or can it?

This was a very good book to read - but very difficult to read. Reading about women in other cultures who do not enjoy the freedoms we do in our country is challenging to take in. Uplifting and a tear jerker.

People of the Book is a very moving testimony about what Christians go through in other parts of the world. As an American Christian I need to read more accounts such as this since I am so shielded here in America. I am amazed at the strong faith of those who must daily fear for their lives. Thank you Kathi Macias for your story!

This book is true to life in today's world. I recommend it to mature Christians or to young people. It portrays life in another world where being a Christian is demanding of sacrifice.

I purchased this book bc I was looking for another book with this same title (isn't there a copywright law against that?) and silly me didn't notice the author's name. The book I was looking for was by Pulitzer prize-winning author, Geraldine Brooks. When I got the book I started reading and after a few pages was blown away with the racist hateful things being said. No! This couldn't be the right book, I realized. I am not especially enamored of middle eastern religion, but this book would be offensive to everyone except those Christians who think we should wage another Crusade against the infidels. Eeeek!
This was the book I was most looking forward to in Kathi Macias' Extreme Devotion series. Kathi is truly gifted at exploring the plight of persecuted Christians around the world. Although her characters are fictional, the writing itself is gritty, yet hope-filled, and true to life. Here, the location is Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, one of the world's strictest and most closed Muslim countries. The heroine is Farah, a devout Muslim seeking more of her God but unprepared for what He will lead her to.

Farah captured my interest right away. Her thirst for God, and thirst for knowledge, are traits I can both relate to and want more of in my own life. Because we both value spiritual and intellectual things so highly, I felt more invested in Farah than I might have if she had not been so devout. In fact, her ultimate discovery is one of the most intense scenes I have read regarding a persecuted Christian. By the same token, her encounters with Isa (Jesus) are some of the most touching.

The other characters are well-drawn as well, even characters like Kareem, who want only to destroy Farah. There is a tendency in some Christian circles to paint all Muslims or followers of other religions as irredeemable in order to gain sympathy for the persecuted. Kathi doesn't fall into this trap. Certain characters like Kareem and his friends are certainly evil, but I could somewhat pity them because they truly believed they were doing God's work. (Shades of Saul, I suppose). I also enjoyed meeting the women of Farah's family, some of whom are caught between Jesus and Islam and engage in an emotional, realistic struggle.

I have read People of the Book a few times now and enjoyed each time. I wish there were even more books like this.
